Legal drama series Silk will return with more of its winning combination of courtroom cut and thrust and steamy shenanigans.
The BBC1 drama follows barristers Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry-Jones as they tackle cases from their London chambers.
Series two showed consistently good ratings of around 5 million in its Tuesday 9pm slot, as well as winning widespread critical acclaim, and creator Peter Moffat says there is still a lot more he can do with the characters.
"It's a joy to write for Maxine Peake and this group of actors. I feel very privileged and lucky. I can't wait to get going [on the third series],” said Moffat."[I have] lots of big ideas about cases, characters, relationships, politics, as well as a great deal of unfinished business from this current series."
"It's usually a good sign as a writer when your anxiety about a new series is not what to say but how to fit everything in,” he added. "The big challenge for all of us is keeping what is very obviously a highly intelligent and focused audience entertained and engaged."
Missed series two of Silk? It's available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Wednesday 27 June
